Pansy, your comment about making the cemetary runs made me a little nostalgic. When we lived in WA I always did the cleaning of the stones and placing of plants and flowers at two different cemetaries in my hometown. After I was grown and married I helped my mom when she was still alive to do this the Friday before Memorial Day. I kept it up after she died until we moved to AZ. It was almost an all day project as I had lots of family: parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and some friends. I feel kind of sad that I'm not able to do this anymore. I have one sister who lives in my hometown and she will take flowers or plants to our parents gravesite but that is it.
